Hardly. I don't get paid if the job is messed up, unlike those who work
for a consulting firm and get a salary. I care very much because my
professional reputation hangs in the balance and determines if I get more
work from clients.
What carrying the insurance does do is jack up prices for absolutely no
return to the client. Full stop.
